(AJNews) – Tikkun Olam – repairing the world – is one of the core values of Judaism. The work needed to heal the world must include at its foundation, the work to heal ourselves, says Calgary Psychiatrist and Mindfullness Teacher, Dr. Allan Donsky.
This statement is the starting point for a very special zoom webinar presentation by Dr. Donsky, on Sunday June 6, 2021 as part of the Calgary B’nai Brith Speaker Series. The theme of the presentation is “Tikkun Olam: Healing yourself as essential for healing the world.”
The topic is particularly relevant in these times of turmoil, including the necessity of navigating the global pandemic, the climate crisis and fears for our economic future. Our own mental, spiritual and physical health is paramount from Mussar and Kabbalistic perspectives.
Admission is by donation which can be made before or after you register at bnaibrithcalgary.org/donation.
B’nai Brith Calgary Chapter 816 President Darren Bondar is encouraging the whole community to participate. “Dr. Allan Donsky is a compelling speaker with valuable information about Tikkun Olam and our health as individuals and as a community,” stated Bondar.
“With the postponement of our annual dinner, which is our key fundraiser and with the needs of the organizations that we support as great as ever during this Covid-19 pandemic, we greatly appreciate your generosity and support.”
